So close, yet, still without a title.
The Michigan men's soccer team
was minutes away from a victory
over Illinois and a Big Ten club
championship this past weekend, but
the Wolverines caved in during the
last few minutes and lost the cham-
pionship to the Illini, 5-4, in
Champaign. With the loss, the men's
soccer team was booted from the na-
tional tournament for the second
year in a row.
The Wolverines stormed out to a
4-2 lead in the second half, only to
see the Fighting Illini blitz Michigan
with three goals in the last nine min-
utes to seal the victory.
"I've never seen anything like it,"
sweeper Dave Rindfusz said. "We

played great for 80 minutes, and
then they scored three goals in the
last nine minutes. The Illini coach
made a lot of substitutions in the last
few minutes and it threw us off.
They really got to us."
"We folded,"coach Aaron Smith
said. "Our guys got real soft towards
the end. We could see the momen-
tum shifting towards Illinois and
there was nothing we could do about
it. It was bad."
In the other three games of the
tournament, the Wolverines shut out
both Purdue (2-0) and Notre Dame
(4-0), and also won by forfeit over
Ball State.
The Wolverines' mental collapse
against Illinois clearly frustrated
"In order for us to win this

championship, we're going to have
to get rid of these confidence prob-
lems that we have once in a while
like in the Illinois game," Smith
said. "It seems that we put ourselves
down instead of thinking that we de-
serve to be in certain spots."
The failure to make the tourna-
ment marked the end of the season
for the Wolverines. They finished
with a overall record of 11-11-3, but
shined with a club record of 7-1-1.
"We improved quite a bit over
the year," Smith said. "We started
out at 0-6-1, and end up going 11-5-
2 the rest of the way. The team
should be much stronger next year
because we are only losing three or
four seniors and the younger players *
gained a lot of playing time this

The Michigan men's soccer team failed to make the national tournament for the second consecutive year.

Patience is a virtue.
For the Michigan men's tennis
team, this is a slogan that's been
taken to heart. The team finished off
its fall season with a sluggish per-
formance at the ITA Midwest
Championships in Madison.
"My feelings are a little mixed,"
coach Brian Eisner said. "I'm not
satisfied, but at the same time I'm
not totally disappointed. We're ex-
tremely young and we'll only get
better with time. Still, I was expect-
ing more from some of our players."
In all, five Wolverines competed
in the singles flight. Of the five,
three lost their first match. Freshman
Peter Pusztai lost to Brad Dancer
from Michigan State, 6-2, 7-5.
Freshman John Costanzo lost to
Michigan State's Mashishka
Washington, 6-7, 6-1, 6-3.
Sophomore Adam Wager lost to
Indiana's Mark Abelman, 6-2, 6-2.
One bright spot in the singles
competition was the play of sopho-
more Chris Wyatt. In the first round,
Wyatt defeated Blang Ly of DePaul,
6-4, 4-6, 6-4. In the second round,
Wyatt fell to Mark Schmidt of Notre
Dame, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.
"Chris had an excellent win in
the first round," Eisner said. "He
played a tough match in the second
round against Schmidt. Schmidt was
a big part of why Notre Dame fin-

*3 class series - $10

*10 class series - $25

ished second in the country last year,
and Wyatt was in there 'til the end."
Perhaps the biggest disappoint-
ment of the singles play was the
performance of junior Dan Brakus.
Brakus won his first two matches
before bowing out in the third round
at the hands of Iowa's Eric Shulman,
6-4, 6-4. Brakus, who was seeded
fourth, was expected to qualify for
the Rolex Indoor Championships in
Minnesota. In last year's tourna-
ment, Brakus reached the semifinals
and was one win away from qualify-
ing for the indoors.
"Brakus was well prepared phys-
ically and mentally for the tourna-
ments earlier this fall," Wager said.
"However, at Madison he had a nag-
ging injury and didn't seem well-
prepared for the tournament."
In doubles, only one team com-
peted for Michigan. In their first
match together, sophomore Grady
Burnett and Costanzo defeated the
fourth-seeded team of David Hold
and Tom Weise of Indiana, 6-7, 6-4,
7-6. In the next round, the pair lost
to Brett DeCurtins and Eric Toth of
Cincinnati, 7-6, 6-3.
"Grady and John played an
excellent first-round match," Eisner
said. "This was their first time
together, and they defeated a seeded
team that was made up of two
seniors that had played together for
three years."
Despite the lackluster perfor-
mances over the fall, the team re-
mains confident of success in the
upcoming Big Ten season.
"The Big Ten will be more bal-
anced than ever," Eisner said. "We
are young, but we should be a strong
team. Between now and then there is
a lot of work that needs to be done."
